Representing Charities Nationwide In Florida Estate Litigation

When a Florida resident names a charity as a beneficiary of his or her estate, he or she intends the gift to be nothing but a blessing and benefit. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for surviving family members to contest the will or trust, embroiling the charity in a maelstrom of unwelcome litigation. Also, many trustees, executors and their attorneys charge excessive fees that need to be rolled back.

At Frese, Whitehead & Anderson, P.A., we have helped resolve hundreds of disputes over charitable estates and trusts and other bequests. Our in-depth understanding of Florida probate and trust law, combined with our experience working with a wide variety of charities, makes us a trusted choice in this esoteric area of practice.
